The Full Package
By RJ Salm on
2009 BMW 7 Series 750i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 6A)
I've only had the car for 2 weeks but this is the most amazing vehicle I've ever driven. This car is ridiculously quick, far faster than a luxury sedan has the right to be. It must be conservatively rated at 5.1 seconds to 60 as it certainly feels much faster. That's saying something as I'm coming out of a tuned 2006 Carrera S. It's a large car that apparently doesn't realize its own size, with the 4 wheel steering and adaptive steering it turns on a dime. The optional sound system is excellent (although a 6 disc player is a waste of space in the dash when you already have a 12 gig hard drive and iPod adapter). Brakes feel grabby when in sport mode, likely the tranny dropping into 1st.
Twin turbo power delivery has incredible flat torque curve, pins you into the seat for what feels like forever. Ventilated seats . The ride is whatever you want it to be. Understated presence. Quiet ride. Premium sound system rocks. New iDrive is super easy to use, completely intuitive.
Needs 20" rims for proportionate look, should be standard. More storage up front (lose the 6 CD player or make it a stand alone option) Dinan needs to release a chip for this car... an easy tune for another 100 hp.
